Magic 105.3 KSMG-FM
Overview: The following contest rules will apply to all text contests on Magic 105.3 KSMG FM unless otherwise substituted for specific contests for Magic 105.3 KSMG FM and (“Sponsor” or “Magic 105.3/ KSMG FM”).
The prizes offered will be announced on Magic 105.3 KSMG FM and described in applicable Official
No person may win a prize more than once in any given contest, and only (1) one winner may win per household. For purposes of all contests, a “household” includes all persons who are domiciled with an entrant, regardless of family relation.
Maximum one (1) entry per person per phone number during the Sweepstakes Period. No person will be allowed to participate in a contest on another person’s behalf. Each participating entrant must provide their own name and personal information. If an entrant uses a false name or presents a false identification, they will be immediately disqualified from the contest and will be ineligible to win any prize, and such conduct may result in legal ramifications. Eligibility decisions will be made by Sponsor in their sole discretion. All decisions of Sponsor are final and binding in all respects. By participating in a Sponsor contest participant acknowledges that they understand and will abide by conditions set forth in these contest rules.
Text Entry: In the case of a text based contest, Magic 105.3 KSMG FM will announce to text a designated "key word" to the short code 38401. The announcement will also include how the winner(s) will be picked either (a) randomly or (b) a specific numbered text message (example, text number 100 wins the contest).
Standard text message rates may apply, see specific wireless carrier for details. To opt out of the text club text the word "stop" to 38401, for help text the word "help" to 38401.
Multiple entries by means of software-generated or other automated processes will be disregarded. The use of multiple identities and/or accounts is prohibited, and any attempt to obtain more than the stated number of entries will void that participant’s entries and may result in participant’s disqualification. Incomplete, forged, altered, automated, mechanically-reproduced, lost, late, misdirected, garbled or illegible entries will be disqualified. Sponsor will not be responsible for failure to receive entries due to transmission failures or technical failures of any kind, including, without limitation, malfunctioning of any network, hardware or software, whether originating with sender, Sponsor, or Sponsor’s Sweepstakes application service provider. In the event of a dispute, all online entries will be deemed to have been submitted by the owner of the ISP account from which they were sent, provided that such person satisfies all other Sweepstakes eligibility requirements. For these purposes, an ISP account holder shall mean the natural person assigned to such ISP account by the Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning ISP addresses for the domain associated with such ISP account.
All entries become property of Sponsor and none will be returned. Any questions regarding the number of entries submitted or the owner of an ISP account shall be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, and Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons who submit false or misleading entry information or who Sponsor determines to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Sweepstakes.
Maximum 1 (one) entry per contest period per person, per phone number. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons who submit false or misleading entry information or who Sponsor determines to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Sweepstakes using any entry method.
The amount of prizes distributed and or prize winners selected in any one Sweepstakes Period is at the discretion of the Sponsor and may or may not be disclosed in the announcement.
An individual may win prizes up to a value of $600. Once a prize value of $600 is reached or the accumulative value of prizes reaches $600, for the calendar year, the individual will be responsible for all federal, state and local taxes on prize value and, as applicable, will be issued an IRS Form 1099 based on the prize value determined by Sponsor. An individual may not win the same contest more than one time.
All cash prizes will be issued in the form of a check from Cox Media Group. When cash is won, the winner will be required to come in person to 8122 Datapoint Drive during a week day during the hours of 8:30 a.m. (C.S.T.) to 5:30 p.m. (C.S.T.) to provide his/her valid Social Security Number to Sponsor for tax purposes, complete an IRS W-9 form, sign a prize release, and present a government issued id in order to claim their prize. No exceptions will be allowed when claiming a cash prize. After all paperwork is completed, it may take up approximately eight to twelve weeks to receive the check in the mail.
Prizes may be fulfilled if not in house within approximately eight to twelve weeks after the conclusion of the Sweepstakes. All prizes are non-transferable and may be claimed in person by only the person who is the winner.
If prize is an electronic device, the ARV of electronic prizes is subject to price fluctuations in the consumer marketplace based on, among other things, any gap in time between the date the ARV is estimated for purposes of these Official Rules and the date the prize is awarded or redeemed. Winners will not receive difference between the actual retail value at the beginning of the Sweepstakes and the actual retail value at the time of prize delivery.
If the prize involves a gift card, Gift card issuer terms and conditions may apply.
If the prize involves tickets to a sporting event, concert, expo, performance, or other limited-time event, No refund or compensation will be paid in the event of the cancellation or delay of the “Trip/Event”, or any portion thereof. Sponsor will not be liable if the Trip/Event, or any portion of it, is cancelled or delayed. Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, attempt to reschedule for a future trip/event. Trip/Event tickets are subject to certain terms and conditions as specified by issuer. The terms and conditions of the Trip/Event tickets may govern if the Trip/Event is cancelled due to weather, an act of God, an act of terrorism, civil disturbance or any other reason. Sponsor is not responsible for, and will not replace, lost, mutilated, or stolen Trip/Event tickets, vouchers, or certificates. Exact details, including seat locations, shall be determined in the sole discretion of Sponsor.
Limit: One (1) prize per person, per household, per contest. A person may only enter using one phone number.
Odds of becoming a Winner depend on the number of eligible participants who call to participate during a particular call-in period, eligible participants who text to participate during a particular text-in period and the order in which the texts are received, and the number of entries received during that period.
When a text winner is selected, the owner of the phone number from which the text entry is sent will be contacted and pending they meet all eligibility restrictions will be awarded the prize. Prizes will not be awarded to a different person to whom the phone number does not belong to.
To claim his/her prize, the potential winner must visit in person Sponsor’s office located at 8122 Datapoint Drive Ste. 600 San Antonio, TX 78229 within 30 days after notification (office visits must be between the hours of 8:30 a.m. (C.S.T.) to 5:30 p.m. (C.S.T.) weekdays) and must present a valid government-issued photo ID and give social security number.
Sponsor’s inability to reach a potential winner after a reasonable (as solely determined by Sponsor) effort has been made, the failure of a potential winner to timely respond to a prize notification, the return of any prize notification as undeliverable, and/or a potential winner’s failure to comply with any term or condition of these Official Rules may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, result in the potential winner’s disqualification and the selection of a substitute winner by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Sponsor will conduct up to 2 alternate drawings, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.
A PARTICIPANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL SPONSOR HAS COMPLETED ITS VERIFICATION OF PARTICIPANT’S ELIGIBILITY.
A winner may waive the right to receive a prize. Prizes are non-assignable and nontransferable and cannot be redeemed for cash. No substitutions allowed by winner. Prizes and individual components of prize packages are subject to availability. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prizes or components of prize packages with a prize or component of equal or greater value.

Winner may be required to provide his/her valid Social Security Number to Sponsor for tax purposes and/or complete an IRS W-9 form in order to claim a prize. Winners are solely responsible for all federal, state and local taxes on prize value and, as applicable, will be issued an IRS Form 1099 based on the prize value determined by Sponsor. Prizes not won and claimed by eligible winners in accordance with these Official Rules will not be awarded and will remain the property of Sponsor.
